American Humor

Il y a plusieurs semaines, une pétition demandant la construction de l’Etoile Noire (Death Star) de Star-Wars était créée.

Bien entendu, cela a fait un buzz et elle a rapidement récolté toutes les signatures dont elle avait besoin.

En accord avec les conditions de la plateforme, les services de la Maison Blanche ont donc répondu à la demande. Et avec beaucoup d’humour (et de culture) :

The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
The Administration does not support blowing up planets.

However, look carefully […] and you’ll notice something already floating in the sky — that’s no Moon, it’s a Space Station! Yes, we already have a giant, football field-sized International Space Station in orbit around the Earth that’s helping us learn how humans can live and thrive in space for long durations.
[…]
Even though the United States doesn’t have anything that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we’ve got two spacecraft leaving the Solar System and we’re building a probe that will fly to the exterior layers of the Sun.
[…]
We don’t have a Death Star, but we do have […] a President who knows his way around a light saber and advanced (marshmallow) cannon
[…]
If you do pursue a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field, the Force will be with us!
